Locust City Administrator James Inman Announces Resignation

Friday, June 8, 2012 — James Inman, who has been Locust city administrator for nearly a decade and was formerly police chief of the city for about seven years, informed Locust Mayor Scott Efird that he would leave his post June 22.

When contacted Friday morning, Inman said he could not comment on where he is headed until a formal announcement is made by the municipality on Monday.

“I’m not leaving here under any bad circumstances or ill will,” Inman said.

“It’s an opportunity that’s too good to pass up,” he said.

Although it was a tough decision, with a couple children in college and a couple more headed there in a few years, Inman said it was the right choice.

Locust Mayor Scott Efird wished Inman well in his future endeavors, but said he was sad to see him leave.

“It has nothing to do with council or personnel,” Efird said.

“He’s doing this for the betterment of his and his family’s financial needs.”
